    "Open one of his books anywhere," Joyce Carol Oates says, "the words leap out with a power that would seem to us demonic if it were not, at the very same time, so utterly plausible." Isaac Bashevis Singer's stories are filled with temptation: the lure of power and money, the demands of lust and obsession. He wrote about ghosts, demons and spectres; but he also makes us believe. Perhaps anything is possible.

    Isaac Bashevis Singer

    I. B. Singer was an outstanding writer of Yiddish stories. His best-selling novels include "The Family Moscat", "Satan in Goray", "The Magician of Lublin", "Gimpel the Fool", "The Spinoza of Market Street", and "The Slave". He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1978. He was a staunch vegetarian for his last 35 years, primarily because of compassion for animals. He was fond of saying that he was a vegetarian for health reasons - the health of the chicken. He frequently included vegetarian themes in his stories. In his short story, "The Slaughterer", he described the anguish that an appointed slaughterer had trying to reconcile his compassion for animals with his job of slaughtering animals. He felt that the eating of meat was a denial of all ideals and all religions: "How can we speak of right and justice if we take an innocent creature and shed its blood".
    - Richard Schwartz Although Berry interviewed many distinguished vegetarians, he particularly remembers his conversations with the Nobel prize winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer: "Vegetarian themes and motifs have sounded through even his earliest work." Asked whether he turned vegetarian for his health, Singer replied, "I didn't do it for my health but for the health of the animals." - from a review of Professor Rynn Berry's 'Famous Vegetarians' Quotes: People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.

BY NORMAN GREEN T he late Isaac Bashevis Singer used to write in the mornings. Afternoons, he strolled down Upper Broadway. He stopped along the avenue to eat a meatless meal and to feed the birds. He carried bank books and thousands of dollars in his pockets too, in case he needed to flee New York in a hurry. He believed that "It" could happen again. Born into a line of great rabbis said to be so holy they performed miracles, the young man from the shtetl of Radzymin, Poland, rebelled against Jewish law. He worshipped his older brother, secular Yiddish writer Israel Joshua Singer, and followed his path, first to the writer's club in Warsaw, then finally to America. He took his mother's Hebrew name, Bathsheba, and made it his pen name in Yiddish, Bashevis. Fleeing Hitler, Singer arrived in America in 1935 penniless and knowing only one English phrase. Broke, despondent after the unexpected death of his brother here and the loss of his world in the Holocaust in Europe, he wrote nothing for seven years. But he went on to become one of the most prolific literary masters of the modern age. His mission: to make the world of the Jews immortal.

    In one of his more light-hearted books, Isaac Bashevis Singer depicts his childhood in one of the over-populated poor quarters of Warsaw, a Jewish quarter, just before and during the First World War. The book, called In My Father's Court
    Singer began his writing career as a journalist in Warsaw in the years between the wars. He was influenced by his elder brother, now dead, who was already an author and who contributed to the younger brother's spiritual liberation and contact with the new currents of seething political, social and cultural upheaval. The clash between tradition and renewal, between other-worldliness and faith and mysticism on the one hand, and free thought, secularization, doubt and nihilism on the other, is an essential theme in Singer's short stories and novels. The theme is Jewish, made topical by the barbarous conflicts of our age, a painful drama between contentious loyalties. But it is also of concern to mankind, to us all, Jew or non-Jew, actualized by modern western culture's struggles between preservation and renewal. Among many other themes, it is dealt with in Singer's big family chronicles - the novels

    Zum 100. Geburtstag Isaac B. Singers erscheinen eine Biografie und ein Geschichtenband. Erinnerung an den Literatur-Nobelpreistrger Isaac B. Singer
    Die magische Welt und die Aufklrung gehen beim Erzhler Isaac B. Singer gut zusammen. In einer Geschichte aus den fnfziger Jahren erzhlt er von einer Frau, deren Mann stirbt und dem sie am Totenbett verspricht, nie mehr zu heiraten. Als sie nach Jahren auf Zureden des Rabbis dennoch Hochzeit feiern mchte, erscheint ihr in der Nacht der Tote im Leichenhemd und richtet sie bel zu. Am Schluss fragt sich der Erzhler, ob nicht eine "Freudsche Deutung" des Falles mglich sei. "Unbewusst ( . . . ) hatte sie ihren Mann wohl sehr geliebt." Singer verfllt nicht dem Reiz des Schaurigen und schlgt sich nicht auf die Seite der Vernunft. Er schafft nicht Klarheit und entscheidet sich nicht fr die einzig richtige Wahrheit. Er hlt jenen Schwebezustand, in dem die eine Welt und die andere einander ins Gehege kommen, einander aber die Vorherrschaft nicht streitig machen. Singers Literatur ist voll von Sonderlingen, die obskuren Ideen anhngen, kleinen Leuten, die nie und nimmer ihrem Schlamassel entkommen, Glcksrittern und Pechvgeln, die in den osteuropischen Schtetln zusammenleben und mglichst ohne Schaden durch ein gewhnlich bedrckendes Leben zu kommen suchen.

    In der Person des Hertz Grein verdichtet sich das Schicksal einer ganzen Generation europischer Juden, soweit sie den Schrecken des Holocausts rechtzeitig vermieden oder berlebt haben. Entwurzelt treiben sie durch eine ihnen fremde Gesellschaft, schwanken zwischen Isolierung und Assimilierung und kompensieren ihre innere Zerris- senheit mit hektischer Betriebsamkeit oder unbe- sonnenen Affren. Auch die jngere Generation entrinnt diesem Konflikt nicht, obwohl sie von Anbeginn im westlichen Umfeld aufwchst. Die Erziehung und Fixierung auf eine eng in die jdische Tradition eingebundene Elterngeneration lsst sie mit jedem Fu in einem anderen Lager stehen. Endgltige Entscheidungen sind da schwer und Konflikte vorprogrammiert. Zum Schluss formuliert Singers "alter ego" Grein das persnliche Glaubensbekenntnis Singers, wenn er allem Weltlichen entsagt und sich den ortho- doxen Juden in Israel anschliet. Nur im radikalen Glauben ohne jegliche profane Ablenkung liegt der wahre Wert eines menschlichen Lebens, und die jdischen Traditionen und Rituale sind fr ihn die

    Isaac Bashevis Singer (Yiddish: יצחק באַשעװיס זינגער) (November 21, 1904 – July 24, 1991) was a Nobel Prize -winning Polish born American writer of both short stories and novels. He wrote in Yiddish. From a traditional Jewish village, he would move to the United States to flee the Nazis during World War II . Most of his literature addresses the cultural clash between the values of traditional society, which he learned first and foremost in his own family, and those of modern society which he encountered after his flight to the New World.
    • Biography
      Isaac Bashevis Singer was born in 1902 in Leoncin, a small village inhabited mainly by Jews near Warsaw in Poland , then part of the Russian Empire, probably on November 21, 1902. (This would concur with the date and month he admitted in private to his official biographer Paul Kresh , his secretary Dvorah Telushkin ( and with the historical events he and his brother refer to in their childhood-memoirs. The usual, official date of birth—July 14, 1904—had been freely decided upon by the author in his early youth, most probably making himself younger to avoid the draft; the family moved to Radzymin, often erroneously cited as his birthplace, some years later.)
